We get our share of interesting mail at craveDFW but today a reader shared an website that we found irresistible. When the site popped up we were introduced to the world of cannibalism. You heard correctly, there are seemingly normal citizens of Los Angeles that are eating other seemingly normal citizens for the ultimate in Soylent Green.
Maneuvering through the website we found a few interesting points. Foremost on our minds was how do they procure their meat. The site explains that they acquire their cadavers through legal and discrete means saying “On the individual level, bodies are often bequeathed to us. For some, this is a way to supplement life insurance and offset funerary expenses,” leading us to believe this is not fresh meat, but rather corpses that they are able to harvest to meet their needs.
The Cannibal Club is frequented by what they claim are “noted filmmakers, intellectuals, and celebrities who have embraced the Enlightenment ideals of free expression and rationalism.”
For those that might enjoy a show with their dinner there are avant-garde performers, notably one Diamanda Galas who is quoted as being “capable of the most unnerving vocal terror.” The primal tones and wretched screams are the perfect accompaniment to any long pig meal.
The Hannibal Lecter-esque menu reads more like a science experiment with highlights such as Placenta Lasagna and Liver and Mushroom Pirozhi.
You can join the discrete club, if they are not just pulling our leg, by sending them a note on their feedback page, and undergo a series of questions because as they say, “it is necessary for us to operate privately and to vette [sic] our members in order to avoid disruption from the less enlightened”.
Consider us “less enlightened”.
